A number of Huntley High School students spent their spring break exploring the historic sites of Paris, Normandy, and other areas of France through a travel abroad trip offered through the school.
The trip included a walking tour of Paris, guided tour of Versailles, visits to Normandy’s historic D-Day beaches, cemeteries, and other sites, as well as St. Malo.
Experience the journey below through Twitter updates and photos from Clay Henricksen and Anne Sharkey, two HHS teachers who chaperoned the trip:

One of my favorite days so far and officially don’t want to come home. Mont Saint-Michel and Saint-Malo. #growths #hhstravelstheworld pic.twitter.com/H21oLj5tMT
